One of my friends was discussing how they couldn’t believe someone they knew had hired help for doing things around the house like cleaning and such. They had hired someone to do tasks that the person was fully capable of performing. They said that was ridiculous, and then they asked if I thought it was … More When They Stop – The World Stops
As I begin to jot this down, I am practically in tears. Today has been one of those days. Perhaps you can relate. I had grand plans. I had my alarm set to have plenty of time to accomplish all that I needed and not be rushed or stressed. And yet…. here I am running … More Pull Over!!!
Getting that unexpected call during the night made my heart pound. I instantly began to wonder what was wrong. The voice on the other end of the line was sobbing uncontrollably.
